As most of you know, the youth do a fundraiser every year for their summer mission experiences that helps the cost of these trips to be more reasonable for everyone. Unfortunately, this year they will not be hosting the pumpkin patch. Through many discussions with leaders at the church, the healthy church team, and the pumpkin patch operators that we partner with, we have made the decision that we feel is in the best interest of everyone’s health.

We do not see how we would be able to host a pumpkin patch for our community without exposing those of you who work the patch, and those who are visiting the pumpkin patch. The youth are deeply upset that they are not able to provide this staple event for our neighbors.
